This review tells of the NW side of Sabang Village and the walk to Sabang Waterfalls. It is not for the faint hearted nor for bare footed or flip-flop wearing traveller. This is for the robust shoed and shore footed explorers who wish to go beyond the sandy expanse of Sabang Beach, to the east of the village. Take water, either a bottle from your resort or purchase in the village, before you start!
One can progress on from the main gathering area for tourists, where the small boats start and end there journeys to from the underground river tour. In a west, northwesterly direction follow the coastline path on foot, past the Blue Cottages resort to the Alpuerto Escapade Resort and Restaurant, (A Veritable Paradise) as it is advertised!
Here one will see a signing in station, for the explorer to register, in walking further along the shoreline to the temple and eventually to the waterfalls. A voluntary donation is requested. Here the children of the establishment may volunteer their services to guide the traveller to the falls.
Having donated a fee, and signing the book, a wise thing to do, one can progress along the main path. The temple is set to the left of the path higher up and open for the curious to investigate.
Further along the fun really begins as the path becomes the shoreline. This is entirely made up of cobbles and boulders, thus the requirement for good walking shoes. I managed to bruise my feet and stub my toes on more than one occasion during the walk and i can say for periods, the air was blue! Scrambling, hoping and falling over, it can take about 30 to 40 minutes to reach the falls. Don't get disheartened, they are there! Persevere and you will find them. Remember however that you have to come back the way you came, so rest well at the falls. It's an energetic journey.
